Malala’s Magic Pencil. Malala Yousafzai

4 stars for this picture book.

This short children’s book serves as a good introduction to Malala Yousafzai for children. Malala’s bravery and commitment to playing her part in improving the world are demonstrated, and this story is sure to inspire others to speak up for what they believe in. Personally, I am not hugely fond of the illustrations by Kerascoet, I feel they are adequate rather than inspirational, but it is a nice touch to have photographs of Malala at different ages shown at the end of the book, as I think this will encourage children to relate to her even more.

I received an ARC of this ebook free in return for an honest review. UK publication: 17 October 2017 by Puffin.
